A topper design I’ve been playing around creating using Designer Resources from craftsUprint, used in conjunction with a background from a kit in the CUP Card Making section printed onto card-stock to make the box lids.
Cards and Boxes:
- Card made using a topper I created using Designer Resources as below stuck onto a bought in Hunkydory base card with a decorative edge. The topper has a small round pyramid of a few layers over the daffodil heads.
- Insert to the card above made using the same Designer Resources but with the daffodils shrunk down and the greetings panel removed so that there’s a nice, clear, area for a greeting to be written inside the card.
- A box to place the card in. The lid is one of the backgrounds from the kit listed below printed onto cardstock with the same topper as on the card on top, but without the layering, stuck on top.
- A similar box, but this time a gift box that’s deep enough for a little gift, such as some hand made chocolates. Made exactly the same way as the card box, but this time scoring so that the depth is deeper but the dimensions across the top are smaller.
- All four matching items together.
To create these cards and boxes I used the following Designer Resources to make the square topper design seen on the items show in photos 1 to 5:
- 5X5 Card Fronts set 11 by Cassandra Campsall
- A Vase Of Daffodils by Frances Dent
- Etched Metal Corners & Ornaments by Carol Lepard
The yellow toned floral background used on the box lids is from the Card Making item:
- Pale Floral Papers by Chris Harland (Although I’ve used one, yellow toned, floral background as a background to the lids of the boxes, the whole kit of pastel shades of floral designs is a great one for anybody’s digital library as they will work well as backgrounds, mats, etc.)
And to finish off, something quite simple, but dimensional, so it will also need a little card box or envelobox made to send it in.
- 5X5 Card Fronts set 11 by Cassandra Campsall (This is the second card I’ve made using a 5″ x 5″ card front from this set. This time I simply used my graphics program to place it in such a way on an A4 page so as, when it was printed out, I could just score, trim and fold into a base card. This was simply decorated using three flowers that I’d made up some time ago and placed in my crafty stash, together with a leaf, a butterfly, and four clear, sticky back, gems.)
